After months of hard work and combing through details, the Vestry passed a balanced budget for the 2016 fiscal year at its December meeting. We have tightened the belt to bring expenses in line with income projections based on years of data, and with God’s help we anticipate a solid ministry year undergirded by solid fiscal responsibility. Thank you for your faithfulness in giving to the ministries of St Michael’s. It is your tithes and offerings that enable everything to happen. There is no endowment fund that helps with operations. It is the simple faithfulness of our parishioners that allows St Michael’s to be a lighthouse to the Holy City and beyond so that lives are transformed for the glory of Jesus Christ.
The vestry also approved plans to continue and complete the renovation of the dependency. Please check out the progress next time you are near the parking lot off St Michael’s Alley.
Work is currently underway to establish a comprehensive safety plan for the church. Thanks to Greg Kitchens and his safety team for laying the groundwork for this plan.
The Vestry thanks you for the privilege of serving St Michael’s in 2015. We trust that God will continue to provide for the work He has purposed in us as we move into the new year.
